WATCH: What Are You So Afraid Of?

There are all sorts of little things that can come up throughout the day that we might be afraid of -- sometimes just unconsciously -- and the stress from those little frights can build up. Maybe it's something small, like seeing a spider. In fact, a spider can be a great representation of all those little things that bug us.

As you watch this video, think of something you might be afraid of -- whether it be spiders, or a certain person, or a current or impending situation -- and rate your fear on a scale of 0-10 before and after tapping. I hope this video will help you identify and let go of that fear so you can enjoy life more fully.

As with any of my tapping videos, this is an abbreviated process for releasing fear. Some folks may find their fear dissolve after just one tapping session, but for others it will take some repetition, bringing the discomfort down little by little each time. (Still others may uncover specific issues that are best addressed directly with a wellness practitioner.) In any event, this brief video should help at least take the edge off the discomfort, freeing you up to enjoy life much more. Let us know how it helped you!

Tapping can sometimes bring up long-buried emotions, which is why I always ask folks to take full responsibility for their own well-being before tapping. For more information about that, please read this disclaimer.

Until next time, feel free to tap along with any of the many videos I have on YouTube or the many recordings I have at
